I have been working at Sports Authority full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Atmosphere is great. The employee discount is amazing.

Cons

Customers can scream and spit at you and the company will always take their side. Store Management is not always on the same page and some managers shouldn't be "managers" they lack the skill set to be an effective leader. Advancement is almost nonexistent.

Advice to Management

Take care of your employees. Retail is not easy and finding great employees is hard. Find ways to motivate your employees. Define your return policy. There have been too many occasions when we follow the return policy but a customer gets upset and upper management takes back a non-returnable item. It makes the store level employees look like idiots.

    I have been working at Sports Authority full-time

    Pros

    Company is currently focused on developing a very positive work culture and seems to be working. Great coworkers and management. Advancement opportunities for the young, innovative mindset. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Serious systems issues. Stuck in the 80's and getting new processes/systems implemented is almost impossible with such high turnover on a very small I.S. staff. Often, company brings in "off-shore" help to handle maintenance issues, but the language barrier makes the process even more difficult and frustrating. Due to these problems, many teams find new ways to work around the current issues rather than fixing them.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in new systems and the support needed to properly maintain them.


  2. Fun place to work for your first job
